Name: Bioluminescence Imaging System LV200
Description:

Please visit http://www2.le.ac.uk/colleges/medbiopsych/facilities-and-services/cbs/lite/aif/Equipment/microscopes/olympus-lv200-bioluminescence-imaging-system">http://www2.le.ac.uk/colleges/medbiopsych/facilities-and-services/cbs/lite/aif/Equipment/microscopes/olympus-lv200-bioluminescence-imaging-system

Luminescence is excitation of a molecule resulting in fluorescence caused by a chemical reaction, either a biological one, bioluminescence, or a purely chemistry based one, chemiluminescence, or by an external light source resulting in photoluminescence. Normal fluorescence microscopes are an example of photoluminescence. The LV200 makes use of bioluminescence and chemiluminescence. Because of the lack of a light source there is no background or autofluorescence when using luminescence imaging resulting in a high signal-to-noise ratio.

Specifications for the LV200 This system is specifically developed for bioluminescence imaging. A built-in system for temperature control, humidity, and gas flow helps to keep the cultured cells or tissue slices healthy for long time (days) experiments. The system can handle small samples in 35 mm dishes.

LV200 with closed condenser (left) and with upwards turned condenser (right) revealing the culture chamber.

An Hamamatsu C9100-13 EM-CCD camera is used for image acquisition. This allows fast imaging at low light levels (using EM-CCD mode) as well as long exposures times at low light levels (using most likely CCD mode). Pixel size of the camera is 16 x 16 µm with an image size of 512 x 512 pixels.

Objectives available: UPLSAPO 10x NA=0.4 UPLSAPO 20x NA=0.75 UPLFLN 40x Oil NA=1.3 UPLSAPO 60x Oil NA=1.35

The system has a high NA tube lens optimized for luminescence imaging with a 0.2 x magnification, all objectives have therefore an effective magnification of magnification x 0.2 (2x, 4x, 8x and 12x).

Name: 3d Printer (Rapid Prototype Machine)
Description:

The Dimension 3D printer uses ABSplus thermoplastic to build models. The 3D printer heats plastic filament at to a semi-liquid state at the print head, where it is extruded in thin accurate layers. Once the prototype has printed you remove the recyclable base of the 3D printer and snap off the model. CatalystEX software is used to convert CAD program’s STL output into 3D modelling print paths. The software allows a 3D view of the model or models to be printed, the model to be scaled to the desired size and control. The Dimension 3D printer allows models of sizes up to 203 x 203 x 305 mm (8 x 8 x 12 in.). There are three colours (Red, Black and White).

Examples of how the printer can be used include making components out of Plastic that in the past would have been made out of metal, for proof testing on assemblies and prototyping

Name: Leica Microsystems - TCS SP5 Spectral Confocal
Description:

Please visit http://www2.le.ac.uk/colleges/medbiopsych/facilities-and-services/cbs/lite/aif/Equipment/microscopes/leica-tcs-sp5">http://www2.le.ac.uk/colleges/medbiopsych/facilities-and-services/cbs/lite/aif/Equipment/microscopes/leica-tcs-sp5

TCS stands for True Confocal Scanner and SP5 for the 5 SpectroPhotometer channels this system is equipped with. The microscope is a Leica DMI 6000 CS inverted microscope with a motorized XY-stage and Z-drive motor focus on the microscope stand (100 nm step size) as well as a SuperZ Galvo stage (1500 µm travel range) for higher speed and accuracy. An incubator is fitted on the microscope stage and CO2 can be piped into this chamber for live cell imaging.

In addition to standard PMTs at position 1, 3 and 5 this system has very sensitive HyD SP GaAsP-detectors at position 2 and 4 which combine high-sensitivity with low noise.

Lasers: 50 mW diode 405 nm 100 mW Argon laser 458, 476, 488, 496 and 514 nm 10 mW DPSS 561 nm 2 mW HeNe 594 nm 10 mW HeNe 633 nm

The SP5 uses an acousto-optical tunable filter (AOTF) to control the excitation laser light and an acousto-optical beam splitter (AOBS) instead of filter blocks to send the excitation laser light to the sample and to reflect the emitted light from the sample into the scan head. This is a more light efficient way than using glass di- or multichroic mirrors and filters. Besides the 5 detectors for detection of fluorescence light there is one detector for the detection of transmitted light. Keep in mind that light going to the transmitted light detector does not pass the pinhole and therefore is not one optical z-section!

Name: Olympus live cell imaging and screening station
Description:

Please visit http://www2.le.ac.uk/colleges/medbiopsych/facilities-and-services/cbs/lite/aif/Equipment/microscopes/cell-r-scan-r-system">http://www2.le.ac.uk/colleges/medbiopsych/facilities-and-services/cbs/lite/aif/Equipment/microscopes/cell-r-scan-r-system

This microscope is an inverted IX81 motorized microscope which combines the Scan^R screening platform and Cell^R imaging station in one system. The Scan^R screening platform can be used for assay development and high-content screening using multiwell plates as well as single slides. This makes it possible to screen both large and small numbers of samples. It has fully automated image acquisition which allows the user to select the number of images per well, the number of wells and the different filter sets. Many brands of multiwell plates are preprogrammed. Results can be analyzed with the powerful image analysis software for automated object detection and cell separation using histograms and gating settings to include or exclude data sets. For live cell imaging as well as for imaging of fixed materials the Cell^R option can be used. This allows fast acquisition and multiple position imaging for many hours. Protocols can be written in the Cell^R software to do complicated image and filter sequences.

This system is equipped with a Hamamatsu ORCA-AG CCD camera (pixel size 6.45x6.45 µm), DIC objectives, hardware ZDC (Zero Drift Compensation) and software autofocus, linear encoders for high xy-precision, CO2 and a stage incubator for live imaging.

In June 2013 we updated the CellR software to the new Xcellence software, version 1.2. This software replaces the CellR software but has basically the same look and feel. The ScanR Acquisition and ScanR analysis software have been updated to version 2.4.0.13 for Acquisition and 2.4.0.11 for Analysis.

Filter wheel with excitation filters for: DAPI (350/50) FITC (492/18) TxRed (572/23) CFP (430/25) GFP(470/22) YFP (500/20) mRFP (556/20) Cy5 (640/30).

Emission filter cubes on the microscope: DAPI/FITC/TRITC (U-61002bs, U-61002m) CFP/YFP GFP/RFP (U-51019x, U-51019bs, U-51019m) HqFITC (Dichroic 505LP, emission 535/50) Cy5 (Dichroic 660LP, emission 700/75m)

We have a second licence for both the Scan^R analysis software and the Cell^R software to analyze data on the analysis computers in room G1a.

This microscope is an inverted IX81 motorized microscope equipped with a: UV laser diode (405 nm, 50 mW) Argon laser, multi-line: 457/488/515 nm (40 mW) yellow diode laser (559 nm, 20 mW) red diode laser (635 nm, 20 mW)

The selection of the laser line is controlled via an Acousto Optical Tunable Filter (AOTF). The use of an AOTF allows excitation intensity balancing within an image, flexible area bleaching e.g. for FRAP/FLIP/Photo-activation experiments and line sequential scanning to avoid cross-talk between channels (multi-tracking). For detection of fluorescence signal 3 PMT and 2 high sensitive GaAsP detectors (HSDs) are installed + a transmitted light detector. Two of the detection channels are equipped with a galvano grating spectral scanning systems for fluorescence emission detection with variable setting of wavelength band. This allows fine tuning of the emission detection and high speed spectral scanning. The spectral range of the PMT detectors is appr. 300 nm to 850 nm. The detectors can be used in two modes (1) conventional photo current detection mode (2) high sensitivity photon counting mode.

Name: Olympus BX61 fluorescence and spectral microscope
Description:

Please visit http://www2.le.ac.uk/colleges/medbiopsych/facilities-and-services/cbs/lite/aif/Equipment/microscopes/advanced-cytological-imaging-system">http://www2.le.ac.uk/colleges/medbiopsych/facilities-and-services/cbs/lite/aif/Equipment/microscopes/advanced-cytological-imaging-system

This is an upright BX61 automated microscope with Scanview, Applied Spectral Imaging's scanning platform for various fully automatic scanning applications, which can take 8 slides. The system is equipped with a 12 Bit camera, which functions in two separate modes - direct view (Normal image acquisition) and Fringe mode - which is the spectral mode. The camera has a VDS 2/3 inch CCD chip, is monochrome (B&W) and is not cooled. The pixel size is 6.7 micron (in calculation don't forget to multiple the magnification factor) and the resolution is 1280x1024 pixels.

Although this is a very advanced imaging system it is also excellent to take single images from a slide. It has a unique aquisition mode that allows to convert 3D stacks into 2D images using only in focus signal

Filters: Narrow-band UV filter (DAPI, Hoechst): exiter filter BP360-370, beam splitter DM400, barrier filter BA420. Narrow-band Blue filter (GFP, Alexa488, FITC, Cy2): exiter filter BP470-490, beam splitter DM500, barrier filter BA515. Narrow-band Green filter (Alexa546, TRITC, Cy3): exiter filter BP530-550, beam splitter DM570, barrier filter BA590. Sky filterset from Applied Spectral Imaging.
